All very sound advice. Goodness knows we all need to save a little money. Application may be a little tricky though. But I wholeheartedly applaud this little nugget: Frequent your public library.
When I was growing up, my parents brought me to the library more often than the shopping mall. They are the kind of parents who are reluctant to spend money on frivolous items -- like toys, fanciful clothes, impractical shoes, make-up. The only things they are really willing to pay for were books. But they also believe in the library.
So do I.
Frequent your public library. It's also better for the environment.
